As per a new report, the lack of Face ID verification process is affecting all transactions on Apple iOS’ “Ask to Buy” system that allows parents to monitor what their children are purchasing online. The Face ID, which was originally meant to replace Touch ID and the sudden failure of the feature, is confusing many users. Multiple threads on the Apple forum show that users are getting frustrated having to re-enter the password manually several times in a row.
It is possible that Apple is taking precautions after it was proved that the Face ID can be fooled by a family member that has a strong resemblance to the iPhone X owner. Children have a slightly lesser grip on their greed as compared to adults and can purchase multiple items online. This is why some of us believe that Face ID cannot be used with the “Ask to Buy” or “Family Sharing” features. It is also possible that Apple simply hasn’t gotten around to enabling it yet.
This just seems to be a minor annoyance rather than a huge problem. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
